Frequently Asked Questions

If you are having trouble or have questions we are here to help!

This page lists some of the common trouble items that parents typically run into. If you don't see the problem here, feel free to call or email us any time (919-901-1197 or info@techsplorers.com)! It's never a bother and we always enjoy speaking with parents.

How do I register for a class?

You must first choose either "Summer Camps" or "Weekend Workshops" (depending on which is open for registration at the time) under the "Register" tab in the top menu. Once you scroll down and find the course you want, click on the orange "Register" button located on the right hand side of schedule. Be aware that the registration process varies by location so make sure you click the correct link. Clicking on the course name will take you to the detailed course description.

Why does the registration process vary by location?

We host our classes at a variety of locations in Wake and Durham county. Some locations prefer to handle registration and payment themselves on their own websites, while other locations let Techsplorers handle the registration and payment. For this reason, it is important that you use the "Register" button next to the course name on the schedule. That link will give you instructions on how to register at that particular location and helpful tips on how to navigate the website.

Why does price vary by location?

We do our very best to keep the prices of our classes consistent, but some of the host sites we partner with automatically include non-optional fees (such as snack and lunch supervision) and the host sites get final say on pricing. However, even though the price is higher at some locations, they may offer special discounts as well so make sure you check out their website to get the best deal.

What is the last day I can register?

The registration deadline varies by location, but most locations allow registration all the way up until the first day of class (providing it doesn't sell out before that time). For camps at St. Francis, Cary Academy, or Montessori School of Raleigh, please check the host location's website to determine their exact deadline.

I filled out the registration form, but I can't find where to pay.

After completing the form (Step 2) and clicking "Submit", scroll down to the bottom of the page and click the "Next" button to move on to Step 3.

Do you offer summer camp scholarships?

Yes! We believe that every child should have the opportunity to discover the joys of science, technology, and engineering so we are proud to partner with Scott-Free and Durham Academy to provide full and partial need-based scholarships for our summer camps (at select locations).
